  • Carb jetting question

    Hello, Im new to this forum and I just picked up a 05 Road star midnight. The bike only has 13k miles. It has Bub pipes and the previous owner stated it has been jetted for the pypes. I just bought a k&n air cleaner assembly for it and im curious if I'll have to have the carb rejetted for this air cleaner? Thanks

    Depends I what jets a renin their. The nsteuctipns that come with Barons jet kit are not appropriate for Roadstars. Really have to look at main jet, pilot jet, and the needle (stock or adjustable nesedle, clip position) to berify.

      Hard to say without knowing exactly what you have in there. You may just need to dial in your PMS. What kind of air cleaner was on there before you swapped to the K&N? Was it stock with a paper filter? Did the housing have any holes drilled in it? Check out the Carb articles in the Technical Section to learn more.

        Doc_v I am not sure whats in there now. It looks stock, but havent taken it apart yet. I plan on doing that some time this week.
